“Pour une fleur avec toi”, an association founded by a VINCI employee
2 June 2020 - All committed! - France
“Pour une fleur avec toi” aims to brighten up daily life for people directly affected by the pandemic while helping horticulturists maintain their operations.
As part of the Group’s Solidarity Initiative, Fondation VINCI pour la Cité is supporting the association, which was set up during the lockdown period by Quentin Campbell, Works Director at VINCI Construction France. For its first initiative, the association has teamed up with two horticultural organisations that employ people in backtowork programmes: Halage and Du Pain et des Roses. Florists from these organisations made and delivered 53 bouquets of flowers to Plurielles, a centre in Paris that provides emergency accommodation for young homeless women, as decoration for residents’ rooms.
